While some children spend their summer vacation playing ball or going to the beach, seven kids use their free time to help save the world in this feature-length animated adventure adapted from the popular television series. While attending summer camp, a group of kids playing with computers are transported into a digital universe, where they make friends with the Digital Monsters, or Digimon, creatures of the electronic world who can transform themselves into more advanced beings at will.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Overall, it's a pleasantly bearable experience."
‑ Michael Rechtshaffen, Hollywood Reporter
"As noisy, chaotic, cheesy and crassly commercial a product as has ever been put on the big screen."
‑ Susan Stark, Detroit News
"If you love Digimon, here's more. No surprises."
‑ Paul Trandahl, Common Sense Media
"The movie doesn't even try for coherence. Each of its three distinct episodes is barely comprehensible in itself."
‑ Bob Campbell, Newhouse News Service
"Nothing but an extensive knowledge of the DigiMythos will make the story of this animated feature the slightest bit comprehensible."
‑ Michael Dequina, TheMovieReport.com
"Parents, if you don't want to compete with popular culture to raise your child ... this is where you draw the line in the sand."
‑ Sean Means, Film.com
"Can be surprisingly smart and lively in its early going, thanks to some cheeky, well-written humor, a genuine sense of excitement and topical ties to the Internet."
‑ Bruce Westbrook, Houston Chronicle
"This picture is such a hyperactive hodgepodge ... mostly because it's cobbled together from three short Japanese movies."
‑ Maitland McDonagh, TV Guide's Movie Guide
"Art may be too much, but shouldn't filmmakers deliver something more than rehashed Saturday morning piffle on the silver screen?"
‑ George Thomas, Beacon Journal
"Plots are difficult to follow and use the words 'Digi' and 'Mon' to an obnoxious degree."
‑ Mike Emery, Citysearch
"With its migraine-inducing laser showdowns and puerile gags ... Digimon almost makes you nostalgic for the relative sophistication of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles."
‑ Bruce Fretts, Entertainment Weekly
"What is particularly unappealing and troublesome about the feature is that it is a video game barely disguised as a movie."
‑ Loren King, Boston Globe
"The film is strictly for the kiddies, there's not that many grownups who would stand for monsters going at each other yelling Fart POWER!!!!! or whatever it is they're saying."
‑ Eric Lurio, Greenwich Village Gazette
"The film's animation is second rate with dull colors and fuzzy drawing. Neither this, nor the lackluster music, can compensate for the story's confusion."
‑ Steve Rhodes, Internet Reviews
"This full-length animated film actually isn't bad."
‑ David Bloom, Los Angeles Daily News
